Hello , for writing my own global planner, i cloned source of navigation stack

git clone

i copied navfn package to my own workspace and built with catkin_make but this weird error comes;

/home/largo/ws/src/navfn/src/navfn_node.cpp: In member function ‘void navfn::NavfnWithCostmap::poseCallback(const ConstPtr&)’:
/home/largo/ws/src/navfn/src/navfn_node.cpp:85:34: error: no matching function for call to ‘costmap_2d::Costmap2DROS::getRobotPose(geometry_msgs::PoseStamped&)’

I had built this package before with the same steps!!!

Any help will be appreciated.

Best regards

Did you only copy the one package to your workspace? You probably want to build the whole navigation stack from a consistent version. Also -- pay attention to which branch you are using -- we've made a lot of API changes in the melodic-devel branch (the default branch when cloning). If you are on Kinetic, you want to "git checkout kinetic-devel" within the git repo to get the right version.

thank you very much, you are right, it is because of the wrong branch, i use kinetic but cloned melodic-devel branch
